What Will You Learn?

  • Learn how to correctly read a food label to make sure you're getting the nutrients you need.
  • Master the science behind digestion, protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, calories, and other concepts.
  • Uncover where you can find nutrients in the foods you eat and the distinct role they play in good health.
  • Recognize what your personal daily requirements of each nutrient should be.

Course Overview

Making smart eating choices is essential to living a healthy, happy, and successful life. Yet all too often, we're exposed to information and techniques that promise quick and easy results but can be harmful to your overall health: crash diets, experimental medications, ever-changing studies on what you should eat more or less of, and more. It can be confusing to dig through the mass of hype, myth, and misconceptions about good nutrition habits. So in the face of potentially misleading information and aids, where can you find the key to nutritional success?

The answer: in understanding the concepts, practices, and science behind good nutrition. Once you master the intricate—and undeniably captivating—interaction between what you eat and its effect on your body and mind, you unlock a powerful and scientifically proven tool to use in the quest for maintaining or improving your personal health.

Nutrition Made Clear is your opportunity to finally sort through nutrition misconceptions and replace them with hard science you can understand. In 36 in-depth lectures taught by dietitian and award-winning Professor Roberta H. Anding, you explore the fundamentals of good nutrition and get a practical and personal guide to applying these fundamentals to your unique lifestyle. Designed to appeal to anyone at any age, this course is an invaluable source of medically backed, statistically proven information about the guidelines for healthy eating and living.

Your Prescription for Good Nutrition

As scientific knowledge and technology have rapidly advanced, we now know that everything you eat and drink has an effect on your mind and body. The essential elements and nutrients contained in food help you in a host of ways, including

  • strengthening your immune system,
  • optimizing the function of your brain,
  • protecting you from illness and disease,
  • and much more.

Because of this invaluable knowledge, you now have the ability to achieve lasting personal health and wellness—more so than at any point in history. By eating right, increasing your physical activity, reducing the risk of chronic illness through wise personal choices, and more, you can stay healthy and active throughout the majority of your life.

Nutrition is an applied science, which means that its power lies not just in grasping the concepts behind it, but in applying those concepts to daily living. In the organized lectures of Nutrition Made Clear, you

  • discover the relatively recent history of nutrition science;
  • learn where to find authoritative—and how to avoid unsafe—nutrition information;
  • master the science behind digestion, protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals, calories, fiber, and other concepts;
  • uncover where you can find nutrients in the foods you eat and the distinct role they play in good health;
  • recognize what your personal daily requirements of each nutrient should be;
  • examine what happens when you get too little—or too much—of a nutrient in your diet; and
  • find out how smarter nutritional choices can radically reduce your risk of developing serious health issues such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, and digestive disorders.

Professor Anding also brings nutrition into your own life and home, with lectures that teach you how to make wise eating choices a daily part of your life and how to ensure lasting health. You learn

  • how to correctly read a food label to make sure you're getting the nutrients you need,
  • how to build your own distinct exercise regimen,
  • how to safely integrate herbal therapies and remedies into your diet, and
  • how to recognize when you should eat organic foods instead of conventional foods.

Nutrition on a Personal Level

Every lecture of Nutrition Made Clear starts with one of Professor Anding's personal anecdotes from more than 25 years of experience as a practicing dietitian. After detailing the science behind the particular topic, she concludes each lecture with a brief Frequently Asked Questions section, in which she addresses practical questions with important bearings on your everyday life, such as:

  • Is drinking tea in the morning better for you than drinking coffee?
  • Which fiber-rich foods can you choose when you're eating in a restaurant?
  • Does taking a Vitamin C supplement affect other medications or supplements you might be taking?
  • Do herbal therapies used to treat medical issues actually work?

Similarly, the course concludes with an entire lecture devoted to answering questions about good nutrition you've always wanted to know but didn't know where to find the answers. Or whom to ask.

Invaluable Tips for Everyday Eating

Even as Professor Anding details the science behind healthy eating and exercise habits, she always makes each lecture of Nutrition Made Clear both practical and personal. As you learn about calories, carbohydrates, and more, you frequently discover a wealth of invaluable—and sometimes even surprising—tips you can easily apply to your own eating habits, including these:

  • Drink your cereal milk: Many of us discard the milk at the bottom of our cereal bowls. However, since many important vitamins and minerals are sprayed on cereal, you miss out on essential nutrients washed off by the milk when you do so.
  • Control your calories: Contrary to popular belief, it is calorie counting and not dieting that is the lifelong solution to losing weight—and maintaining that loss.
  • Watch out for "the shine": When eating out, watch out for salads, pastas, meats, and other dishes that appear to "shine." This usually means the food contains extra—and unnecessary—fats and oils.
  • Pay attention to portion size: When reading nutrition labels, make sure to do so with portion sizes in mind, as what may appear to be low in calories may have an incredibly small serving size.

Professor Anding also teaches you how to calculate your own dietary needs, how to create your own nutrition and exercise plans, how to recognize that a product or service is really a health fraud, and more.

Maintain and Improve Your Well-Being

What makes Nutrition Made Clear so unique is that it recognizes just how personal your own nutritional needs can be, and it outlines direct steps to show you how to customize the lessons you learn in these lectures to your lifestyle. This is due in great part to Professor Anding's wealth of experience as a health educator both inside and outside the academic world.

For more than 25 years, she has educated adults of all ages about the merits of good nutrition in her role as teacher and lecturer at both the Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University. In addition, outside of a university setting, Professor Anding is a registered dietitian in Texas, a registered dietitian with the American Dietetic Association, a certified diabetes educator, a certified specialist in sports dietetics, and the dietitian for the Houston Texans NFL franchise.

Her research and teaching is continually focused on finding ways to improve the health and well-being of Americans, and it is this passion that forms the core of this fascinating course. Crafted with the needs of individual people in mind, Nutrition Made Clear is both a fascinating learning experience and the perfect investment in your personal health—one that will educate you, motivate you, and reward you for the rest of your life.

Nutrition Made Clear is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 241.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Class My husband and I are really enjoying the lectures! The instructor is very easy to understand and knows her subject very well. Extremely informative!
Date published: 2018-02-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this a few weeks ago and have listened to about half the seminars and am very impressed with the quality of the information. The instructor is very knowledgeable and easy to understand. She talks about nutrition in a scientific way that is not the nutrition du jour so she seems more believable and permanent. I have been studying nutrition for many years and she is teaching me a lot.
Date published: 2018-01-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Information and Easily Applied I am about half way through the entire series and there is a lot of valuable information I didn't think about. Lots of easy things you can do to improve your overall nutrition once you understand how it works. I will be buying more of your Great Courses!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Course description OK, lecture content fair. From the lecture titles, one could conclude that the range of topics is impressively comprehensive, the actual lectures however are quite disappointing. Dr. Anding uses what I describe as a "stream of consciousness" style of presentation. The result is an amorphous collection of ideas lacking logical connection one to the other. I realize that the course is for the general public, but I still believe that the biochemical references Dr. Anding makes are much too superficial to enhance the understanding of whatever principle she is talking about. Jumping from one topic to the other during the course of a lecture left me not much better informed than I was at the beginning. The absence of references to some solid biochemistry, when presenting a particular recommendation or explanation is, to my mind at least, notable. I was not expecting an introductory course in biochemistry or physiology, but the references to the basic science were too superficial for my taste. There is already an abundance of information to the public on "the benefits of fibre, leafy vegetables, grains etc in the diet" so I was expecting something beyond this. Given the presentation style, it was difficult to take away much more.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Contains Misleading Information I listened to this entire lecture series and was enjoying it until I got to Lecture 31 on organic foods. Dr. Anding presents misleading and to be blunt flatly incorrect advice with regard the use of organic foods to avoid pesticides. Do a google search on Dr. Bruce Ames and organic pesticides. Prof Muller from U Cal Berkeley has a great short clip online that summarizes this research. The mutagenic effects of organic foods can be higher than for non-organic foods. Dr. Anding appears to be totally uninformed as to this research. Also in my opionion Lecture 32 way underestimates the effect that sugary drinks have had on the obesity epidemic. Again you can find research online that discusses this. My issue is that when you find information that is just plain incorrect in one lecture it makes you question the validity of information in the remaining lectures.
Date published: 2017-12-18
Rated 2 out of 5 by from great presentation skill, some very outdated info Professor Anding is a lovely and amazing lecturer. She is clear and uses good technique for presentation and learning. Most of her information is good, though very very basic. Unless, you know absolutely nothing and are gravely out of shape, I doubt you would find the course helpful. I have a science background, I have done much research on anti-inflammatory diet, specific carbohydrate diet, ketogenic diet. I am a huge fan of Dr. Perlmutter, Dr. D’Agostino and Dr Mayer. There is powerful new information out on the benefits of low carbohydrate diet. The ketogenic diet and paleo diet and their ability to change our epigenetics is a robust and very effective tool for health. (Gut health, Mind health and Cancer prevention) Professor Anding is representing outdated and now proven to be false ideas. You do not get low energy on low carbohydrate diet. Yes initially while your body is going through withdraw there is fatigue, if you follow healthy ketogenic principles, that will go away. I was saved from lifelong illness and dependence on steroids due to a gut inflammatory condition by the use of low carbohydrate diet. Once you use healthy vegetables only as carb source and a new food pyramid based on vegetable on bottom and no grains at all, with absolutely no sugar, your brain will get used to the conditions. I am an athlete on low carb diet, never been more healthy, never had less illness, and even brain fog has lifted. (and I am in my 40s) Professor Anding also states that artificial sweeteners are safe… could not be further from the truth, they are very dangerous for our gut microbe health, that has been proven for a decade. Professor Anding, you are such an amazing teacher; too bad you still represent the SAD diet (Standard American Diet) truly sad, there is so much information on a better way. You want health, read Primal Blueprint, Grain Brain, Brain Maker, and Mind-Gut connection. Also recommend The Keto Reet Diet by Mark Sisson to anyone struggling with gut issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very interesting and Informative I purchased this course to make my wife and I more aware of nutrition as we are both working on loosing weight and staying healthy. The course is providing a wealth of information and we look forward to each new episode. It will be handy to review different topics from time to time.
Date published: 2017-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I Purchased If you know some or nothing about nutrition this will definitely educate you. Even though it was done in 2009, I think most of the info is relevant . The medical/nutrition fields are constantly changing, as the instructor says "keep that in mind". I purchased an audio download, so I can go back and easily listen again on my iphone to any half hour section I want, very convenient.
Date published: 2017-07-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nutrition: The Other Side of Medical Care Cookbook courses are helpful, but do little to help me understand the importance of nutrition. I'm learning to pay closer attention to the nutrition labels on foods and to remember that several foods can have "duplicate" nutritional elements that can provide too much of the same element; salt is a good example.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutrition Made Clear Great presentation, made even better by the real word examples. I wish that I had read this prior to "The Science of Natural Healing", for me, it would have been a more logical sequence.
Date published: 2017-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am currently about 1/2 finished with the course and I am enjoying listening at my convenience and also pausing, re listening when I want. I would recommend these courses and the professional staff too.

Date published: 2017-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic overview! I'm loving this nutrition course. I took an 8 week intensive nutrition course, but it left gaps. This course filled in all the gaps and answered all those nagging questions. I like the way it's science based and not trend facts. Nutrition is always changing with the discovery of new things...science is like that! I would love an updated version with more in depth information.
Date published: 2017-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great explanation of a difficult topic! I purchased this course about two years ago. I have watched each lesson in full more than once as I continue to reinforce the material. I do wonder about out-of-date material as the science is fluid in this area. This course will slowly lose relevance. I would gladly pay for updated material. Professor Anding has great approach with relevant examples at the beginning of the lectures.
Date published: 2017-03-22
Rated 2 out of 5 by from outdated material I think the professor is very professional, but nutrition is ever changing and I feel that a lot of her material is outdated. I cringe at some of the "facts" she teaches. Disappointed in the content and the fact that it is not current.
Date published: 2017-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from JTP Review for Nutrition Made Clear What made this course excellent: Each lecture was focused and yet shown to be connected to other lectures The lecturer came across as engaged, interested in the topic and interested in my success as a student (even if she was reading from notes or a teleprompter). Overall, the course showed great respect for the learner's time. Only possible downside...Perhaps some of the material is a bit dated. This is 2017 and many references were made to findings and events around 1999-2002.
Date published: 2017-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most informative I wish I had paid more attention to proper nutrition earlier in my life. This is a comprehensive set of lectures that is delivered clearly and instructive, providing a road map through nutritional practices and exercise by which a healthier life style can be easily achieved. I highly recommend this course for people of all ages who want to take charge of their health.
Date published: 2017-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Title I am about one third of the way through this lesson. Very informative. Easy to follow, however, I feel that definitions either in the book or the dvd would be helpful. I am quite pleased with the information I am gaining.
Date published: 2017-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I've learned so much from this course. And I've learned how to apply this to my every day life. Plus it's great knowledge. I recommend that everyone take this course! I loved it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting The lecturer knows her subject backwards and forward, but she talks non stop and uses her hands too much. Hard to watch and listen to.
Date published: 2017-02-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with purchase. Love the fact I can use the DVD or view online. Pricing was good. I will be purchasing more course!
Date published: 2017-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful This course is a great resource for trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. The courses teaches the science behind nutrition while offering practical suggestions for healthier choices that are sustainable.
Date published: 2017-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So informative! I am just in the first third of the class, and I am loving the lectures! Having a science background, it's nice that she goes into some mechanisms that make the science-minded person happy. But it's not so detailed that a non-science person would be turned off. I think it's the perfect blend for the science geek and the layperson. The information is very up-to-date and pertinent to everyday living. I wanted to take this class to learn more about the insulin resistance (metabolic syndrome) that I had been struggling with for the past few years. She has a lecture specifically about that, along with other lectures that include metabolism, insulin, and glucose. So far, I am very happy with this course, and I'm excited to get to the upcoming lectures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be required reading for anyone alive... An OUTSTANING presentation by a nutrition expert in an understandable format, content, and pace. Truly extremely helpful in basic nutrition, navigating the misinformation about nutrition, and tremendous value for health. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked it The professor's presentation builds nicely and speaks from experience. She has done work in the field and has solid credentials. Her advise is workable and relevant to just about any life style. The only negative is that the professor has soft voice and I found myself drifting off. The good news is that I could back up and catch what I missed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good info This is a good course. It shows how to navigate through the myriad of information on nutrition, so much driven by false claims and money making schemes. This is based on good science.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nutrition made clear Was not very happy the way put references to herbalist. Should keep to the subjects. I did learn a few things. About certain food.
